Not the best reel...
I use this reel to surf fish. I hooked up to a 3 ft bonnet head shark and while fighting him the gears were popping. I don't know if it's because of the plastic housing but anything with some weight causes the gears to skip and grind.
ConsNot a good construction.

Dont buy it for salt water!
The reel has a very weak plastic used for reel foot. If you catch a fish 20lb or above, the whole reel will flex at the reel foot. crap

good reel with tons of drag, only down side is the minor flex in the reel seat but that doesn't bother me. really wish there was a braid spool for this one.
Prosgood value, good capacity, awesome drag.
Conscan use a braid spool, can use some reinforcement to the reel foot and stalk, minor play in the spool.

reel foot problem
purchased the 4000 size for inshore saltwater fishing.I installed it on a star steller lite 7 foot 10-20 lb line rating rod. The reel foot is so thin it is moving inside the reel seat.I do not want to go any lighter on the rod because it won't match properly.My only option is to install some tape or other material to tighten it up,something i do not want to do after spending 215 dollars.
Prosperfect line lay,good drag,light weight.
Consreel foot moving inside reel seat.body of reel feels like cheap plastic.Daiwa calls it composite.

Is this reel the replacement to the Sealine Black BRi? If so is it a better reel overall?
Yes they are. Specs wise they look to be much improved but they are not out yet so I haven't gotten to see them.
